Guys I'm looking for an Armscor 1911 in 45. But I want something a little more compact than my Springer 5" as it has proven a little tough to conceal. I want a cheaper gun that I can throw parts at and make my own but I'm wondering which platform is best i.e. most reliable, easiest to work on and of course looks are important. I don't want a huge laser embossed logo across the whole slide if at all possible. So is there really a difference between the various Armscor guns such as RIA, Spartan and so on?
